Abstract

Oftentimes, the coaching staff that make up the multidisciplinary team of a sports club or governing body require a single, holistic indication of an athlete’s athleticism. Currently there is no consensus on how this is best achieved and thus the Total Score of Athleticism (TSA) may provide one such strategy. The TSA is derived from the average of z-scores (or t-scores in the case of small samples) from a sport specific fitness testing battery, ensuring athletes are judged across all the relevant fitness capacities that best define the physical demands of competition. To aid readers in using the TSA, this article also details how it is computed in excel.
